Scholarship recipients and donors come together at special eventFriends and SupportersStudents
Chancellor Block joined student scholarship recipients and donors at a brunch to recognize achievement and generosity.
Recipients included first generation college-goers, U.S. military veterans and international students.
“You each have a unique story, but together, as Bruins, you will go on to do remarkable things for our society. When you succeed, we all will benefit,” Chancellor Block told students.
Chancellor Block also praised donors for their generosity: “Your support has given hundreds of students the opportunity to reach even greater heights. You know the importance of a quality education, and you are helping us advance UCLA’s commitment to exceptional students from diverse backgrounds.”
